29 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011. Inactive in all chess since 2013.

I still follow professional chess because I'm curious to see who wins, but overall my sense is that too many people take this board game way too seriously.

   Feb-02-16 Tradewise Gibraltar (2016) (replies)
dumbgai: 4 players lead with 6.5/8 and 12 players chasing with 6/8 heading into the final two rounds. Business as usual for a big open tournament.
   Jan-31-16 Tata Steel (Group B) (2016) (replies)
dumbgai: Adhiban will have his work cut out for him in next year's A group, but you can't say he hasn't earned it.
   Jan-29-16 Tomashevsky vs Ding Liren, 2016 (replies)
dumbgai: Finally cracked under the sustained pressure...
   Jan-29-16 B Bok vs Ju Wenjun, 2016 (replies)
dumbgai: Black still has a chance for a swindle: 37...Rxg6 38. Rh1?? Rg1+! 39. Rxg1 Qh7+ and black even wins.
   Jan-27-16 A Haast vs N Abasov, 2016
dumbgai: Haast is a dangerous attacker in the early game: A Haast vs N Batsiashvili, 2016 . The way to beat her is to survive the first 30 moves or so, then let her beat herself: B Michiels vs A Haast, 2015
   Jan-26-16 Tata Steel (2016) (replies)
dumbgai: Great attacking game by Wei. He's doing well so far.
   Jan-23-16 N Batsiashvili vs Ju Wenjun, 2016
dumbgai: Alternatively, 24...Bb7 and black can still grab the c-pawn later.
   Jan-22-16 A Haast vs E Safarli, 2016
dumbgai: Poor Haast can't get anything going. 3...Nd4 is not considered the best line because it weakens black's pawn structure, but white played too timidly with 6. Be2 and 7. d3. After about 12 moves black has gotten rid of his doubled pawn, and has an advantage in space and development.
   Jan-21-16 Ding Liren vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
dumbgai: QID is one of Karjakin's main openings with black. He probably thought his extra space on the queenside would compensate for being behind in development.
   Jan-21-16 Evgeny Bareev
dumbgai: Was surprised to learn that Bareev now plays for Canada. If he plays, the team will have a very strong experienced GM. If not, he can still be an excellent coach for team.
